StoryStream at Fresh Pond Day

Storyteller Doria Hughes, one of the co-founders of massmouth, told stories of butterflies, mice and Finn McCool in the StoryStream tent at Fresh Pond Day on Saturday, May 7.  As children and adults came to explore the information tables and craft activities, we invited them to hear stories (and also to enjoy nature-oriented books from the library).  Children sat on a blanket and told Doria about birds and other animals and she filled their imaginations with good stories.  There was one young child who just decided to wander…but kept coming back with dandelion bouquets for Doria. 
Jason Weeks, Executive Director of the Cambridge Arts Council, connected StoryStream to the celebration held by the Water Treatment Facility along the shores of Fresh Pond. Thanks to Jason, Deb Albenberg of the Water Department, Doria and Massmouth!
